The Colorist Orchestra is a Belgian ensemble founded by Aarich Jespers and Kobe Proesmans in 2013. They re-envision the repertoires of established musicians from across genres using traditional classical instruments and arrangements, along with a variety of their own musical inventions to contribute innovative, never-before-heard sounds and grooves to their compositions and re-compositions.
Emiliana Torrini’s voice has been embedded in your brain over the last 20 years whether you knew it or not. She was a member of GusGus, and she’s written/produced/performed numerous songs and hits with the likes of Kylie Minogue, Thievery Corporation, Bill Callahan and more. She herself had a #1 hit in a few countries with the song “Jungle Drum” and in Germany it stayed in the #1 position for nine weeks! She contributed a song to the multi-platinum Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers Soundtrack and her songs have been feature in many television shows. Her debut album was released in 1999 and was followed by three more critically acclaimed titles, the most recent being Tookah, in 2013.
Working on a new album ‘Racing the Storm', an identity with its own aural uniqueness emerges consciously, steadily and at the same time unplanned, step by step over a period of four years. A gathering, both static and effervescent, near and far, invites the listener to dance, to listen.
Whereby, entirely according to your own energy, in conversation with text and music, images and movements can arise, like contours of your own film. That film of which only you can read the subtitles.
Note by note, the score for a completely new live repertoire unfolds. If you have already seen a concert celebrating the blazing friendship between The Colorist Orchestra and Emiliana Torrini, then you know... A unique synergy not to be missed.
